    When I revise a topic, it just doesnt stay in my head. Since I have a lot of subjects to revise for I do a little bit of one, and then a little bit of another, and keep going like that, but once Ive moved on the other subject doesnt stay in my head. I just forget it
    Previously I've been okay because I've only had like 2 exams to revise for and i just crammed the week before, but with 16 exams to revise for I can't do that.
    How should I revise to make it stick?!

    i assume your just reading it. I write down key words while im reading it, for example, the CGP book highlights key words, i just copy them. After this, make postcard size notes cramming all of one topic in 1 side of the card.

    Iyt may seem as if you have forgot it, however, you dont just keep making notes/

    I know exactly how u feel. I have eight modules to revise for. I revise one and get it to a good extent, move on, only to come back and realise my knowledge for the previous one has gone all flimsy again. But the only way is to keep going over stuff. The more you go over it, the more it will stick. I keep telling myself this but it is very frustrating going over the same things over and over but you just got to plough through it. For stuff that relies more on memory, try making lil poster type things and stick them around the house. That's what I'm trying so I can constantly have it in front of me instead of having to look for it in my folders. Ease of access will mean you are more likely to look at it more times and therefore remember better. Good luck.
